  • Morning Phase

    Morning Phase

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Beck
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Capitol (2014, Feb 25th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine Often pigeonholed as being prolific to a fault, Beck took an extended break from recording after the 2008 release of Modern Guilt. He kept himself busy, producing acclaimed albums for Charlotte Gainsbourg, Thurston Moore, and Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, blowing off steam via his mischievous Record Club (an online series where he and his friends covered classic albums), and then easing back to original songwriting through the ambitious Song Reader project, a folio containing sheet music for 20 unrecorded songs. He also suffered a spinal injury in 2008, a fact not publicized until he was ready to release Morning Phase, his first album in six years, early in ... See more details below Eligible for . more

    Muppets Most Wanted

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   ~ Celine Dion
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Disney (2014, Mar 18th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger The 2011 Muppets reboot managed to re-establish the rainbow connection for millions of longtime fans, while simultaneously introducing a whole new generation to Jim Henson's beloved sketch-comedy puppets. 2014's Muppets Most Wanted finds the gang back on top and touring the world, only to become embroiled in an international crime caper that involves a chippy Russian prison guard played by Tina Fey, a tenacious Interpol agent played by Modern Family dad Ty Burrell, and a Kermit doppelganger/super-criminal and his slimy number two, the latter of whom is brought to life by Ricky Gervais. As one would expect, musical hijinks ensue, beginning with the likeable, ... See more details below Eligible for . more

    Heartthrob

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Tegan & Sara
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Warner Bros. (2013, Jan 29th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Tim Sendra On their 2009 album Sainthood, Tegan and Sara made some tentative steps into the pop mainstream by stripping their sound down to the bare essentials and delivering a batch of their hookiest songs to date. Four years later, on 2013's Heartthrob, the duo dives into the pop mainstream headfirst. Working mainly with producer Greg Kurstin, the duo's approach is slick and punchy with lots of synthesizers, programmed drums, and a sound that falls somewhere between Robyn and Katy Perry on the pop spectrum. While longtime fans might be a bit perplexed by the shift, they will find plenty of familiar ground to cling to as the record plays and the smartly written and tear-filled songs ...

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Booker T
    Format:   Audio CD
    Publisher:   Concord Jazz (2013, Jun 25th).
    Pages:   

    All Music Guide - Steve Leggett Booker T. Jones has certainly put his mark on modern pop music. As part of the legendary group Booker T. & the MG's, Memphis' first integrated band, and the house band at Stax Records in the 1960s, he pretty much was in at the ground floor of the invention of soul, backing classic soul hits by Otis Redding, Eddie Floyd, William Bell, and many others, as well as generating iconic instrumental hits from the era like "Green Onions," "Time Is Tight," and numerous others with the MG's. Jones left Stax as the 1970s hit and the label was essentially falling apart, and he's drifted from label to label ever since, his legacy secure as the dominant Hammond B-3 organ player of ...

    All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger Featuring an original score from composer Mark Mancina (August Rush, Brother Bear), the soundtrack for Planes, a 2013 3-D computer animated spinoff of Pixar's popular Cars franchise, devotes 24 of its 29 tracks to Mancina's amiable, heroic, and upbeat score, while offering up five non-score cuts from the film, including Mark Holman's appropriately propulsive "Nothing Can Stop Me Now," Chris Classic and Alana D's soulful "You Don't Stop - NYC," and Jon Stevens' hard rocking "Fly."
